Washington Post – Time To Retire Term “Fake News”

Fake News Blow Back Hits Main Stream Media

Last week, on January 12, 2017, we reported that according to Rush Limbaugh, the New York Times was banning the use of the term “fake news”. Today, we learned of a story in the style section of the the Washington Post that appeared on January 8, 2017, calling for the retirement of the term fake news.

The term apparently has been co-opted and used against the Washington Post, NY Times, CNN and other main stream media purveyors of some times fake news for the Washington Post’s liking. Margaret Sullivan, previously a public editor at the New York Times, writing for the Washington Post referenced uses of the term fake news by former Senator Jim DeMint, Info Wars’ Alex Jones and an “arch conservative webstite” (unnamed but linked to Stop the Take Over .org) in her recent column.

For Ms. Sullivan such use by a “tea partier”, a “conspiracy theorist” and an “arch- conservative website”, of the term fake news was enough for her to conclude the term needed to be retired. In the manner of a top PC word police officer, Ms. Sullivan declared that the word fake news needed to removed from the lexicon because it had been co-opted and become removed from its original meaning.

Perhaps, instead the term “fake news” still meets Ms. Sullivan’s definition: “deliberately constructed lies, in the form of news articles, meant to mislead the public”. Look no further than three recent fake news stories published by the Washington Post and cataloged here that arguably meet that definition.

The term “fake news” is not going away. The main stream media weaponized the term fake news and created a Frankenstein. CNN was on the receiving end of a “fake news” truth bomb last week when President- Elect Donald Trump silenced a CNN reporting by calling his organization “fake news”.

New York Times To Ban Term “Fake News”

According to Rush Limbaugh, the New York Times will no longer use the term “fake news”. Seems the left’s “fake news” campaign to discredit alternative competing media outlets has backfired on them. Charges of “fake news” began soon after the Presidential election was over as an excuse for Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

Alternative media bloggers and you tubers leveled charges of “fake news” back at main stream news outlets and created their own fake news outlet list that included the New York Times, the Washington Post (for peddling the prop or not and Russian hacking of a Vermont power plant fake news stories) and CNN.

But no “fake news” charge was delivered so decisively as when Donald Trump yesterday silenced CNN reporter Dan Acosta by telling him his news organization was terrible and “fake news”.

BOOM!

It can only get worse from here for the main stream media, so the New York Times has chosen to cut its losses and stop using the term fake news.

Perhaps President Trump can call a reporter “racist” at his next news conference?

Trump Calls FAKE NEWS on CNN

The “fake news” chorus from the main stream media continues unabated. The fake news charges, however, are being turned on the main stream media by none other than President-Elect Donald Trump. Mr. Trump responded to reports by CNN that he would continue to be involved in “the Apprentice”, even when he assumes the Presidency.

Mr. Trump fire off this tweet, calling the charge ‘ridiculous’ and ‘untrue’ and labeling CNN’s account ‘FAKE NEWS’

One can only wonder how long the main stream media will continue its attack on fake news that seems to be convincing few, and in many instances, subjecting the MSM news outlets to ridicule and scorn.

CNN Channel Airs REAL Porn On Thanksgiving

Numerous news outlets are reporting that CNN aired a half hour of hard core pornography on Thanksgiving. CNN viewers expecting to see Anthony Bourdain’s travel show “Parts Unknown” around 10PM EST were showed instead a half hour of transsexual porn.

Luckily for CNN, the broadcast snafu was limited to RCN, a Boston area cable provider. RCN, however, does have a substantial reach with approximately 300,000 subscribers, so in spite of CNN’s low ratings, there were inevitably some viewers who would have seen the pornographic broadcast.

Given that a show “Parts Unknown” was replaced with transsexual porn leads to the suspicion that the programming snafu was an intentional act of sabotage.

Update: Mediaite – says report may be fake!

The main stream media has declared a war on “fake news” and has enlisted Google and Facebook to help them eradicate news that contradicts their narrative. Alternative media, has been blamed by the MSM as the purveyor of influential fake news that tipped the election to Donald Trump.

MSM even touted a list of fake news sites.

Alternative media struck back with their own fake news site lists, including such MSM stalwarts as CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times and others.

Now, the Rutherford Institute accuses the government of being the largest publisher of fake news.
